Servings 4
Author Lisa Fain

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons pan drippings, bacon grease, or vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Combine the fat with flour in a hot skillet, continuously stirring, cook on medium for a couple of minutes until a roux is formed.


  2. Add milk slowly to the skillet, and mix with roux using either a whisk or wooden spoon (be sure and press out any lumps). Turn heat to low and continue stirring until mixture is thickened, a couple more minutes. Add the pepper and salt then taste and adjust seasonings. 


  3. If the gravy is too thick, you can thin it by adding either more milk or water a tablespoon at a time. Goes great with mashed potatoes, fried chicken, biscuits, chicken fried steak, grits, vegetables, rice or anything else you can imagine.
